Involvement in the Healing Process
Loving someone who is suffering from mental illness and/or addiction can feel overwhelming and hopeless. You may at times experience feelings of powerlessness, anxiety, and find yourself acting in ways you would not have ever imagined. These experiences are common.
At CAST Centers, we understand that mental health and addiction affect not only the individual, but the people they are close to, from parents, siblings, children, to partners. We also believe their involvement in the healing process is critical to the long-term and sustainable success of our clients.
Throughout the course of the day participants work on a myriad of issues including healthy boundaries, crisis and relapse management, planning for life after treatment, family and relationship dynamics, communication skills, and the opportunity for them to process their own experience in dealing with mental illness and addiction.
Destigmatize Mental Health and Addiction Treatment
The mission of the Family Day Program is to provide a hopeful, supportive and educational space for our clients’ loved ones. Through education, we aim to destigmatize mental health and addiction treatment. Through support, we aim to empower loved ones to begin their own healing process.
Our Family Day Program is held generally every 8 weeks on a Saturday at our clinical offices in West Hollywood, CA. The day is modeled off of a day of programming that our clients receive at the PHP level of care. It is staffed by our Alumni Coordinator, Clinical Director, our CEO and Founder, Therapists, and our Director of Admissions. This allows participants to get the very best help from professionals, and to also get to know the staff.
Who is eligible to participate in our Family Day?
Our program is open to the family members and partners of CAST Centers current clients and alumni. Please contact us for more details and to reserve your seat at our next event.
